A Glimpse Of The Late Winter Landscape by Richard Lewis 2015
Recently my wife and I jumped the gun on spring when we set out to hike a section of the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania. The trail was very icy and when we reached an overlook called Pulpit Rock, the wind became unbearable. We ate our lunch sheltered in some rocks and decided to bag the rest of the hike and head back.
In spite of the ice and wind, I was fascinated by the winter landscape and the dark, ominous sky. I had to set up my camera and take this photograph. The sky wasn’t really this dark and foreboding, but this edited image fits the mood, and the memory of that hike.
